I bought the Authentic. I don't have any personal experience with the Navigator; it's 100% wool, which is nice, but I don't know how it fits compared to my model. So with that in mind, I recommend the Authentic (as others have before me, I believe); for the price, it's hard to imagine being more pleased with a peacoat than I am with the Authentic.

By sizing down you'll get a coat that's fitted, but still boxy and roomy enough to not look effeminate. Brian SD did the exact same...
I looked into Knit Alteration for myself only a week or two ago, and they seem very good, but obviously the wait time is a downside. So far I haven't tried them; if I get my hands on some nice sweaters after the cold weather has mostly passed (probably mid-April or earlier for Florida), then I might give them a shot. As for knit blocking:
This problem might be caused (or exacerbated) by onseam pockets. Try buying pants with slanted pockets instead.
Inform them of the mistake and send pictures of yourself. They'll alter your first shirt too, if you want.

Not at the moment. I'd have to borrow a friend's camera; maybe I'll get a picture next week when I'm not so busy. Bryan SD has posted a picture of his Sterlingwear peacoat, though. You should do a search.

I think the quality is very good, particularly for the price, and it's a substantial weight, which is something you want in a peacoat. As for the style, I very much like it. It's a more authentic and less fashiony look (which in my opinion is also something you want in a peacoat, at least your first one). If you size down from your normal...
I'll admit I've been wanting these for a while: I'll probably pull the trigger on them soon if I don't get them for Christmas, so make sure to leave a couple of pairs for me, chums.
